Jamie Dimon: “I was safer in Beirut”… Maybe Because of Those Gold Bullions JPMC Sent Iran?

The world’s richest drama queen complains he was safer in Beirut than being confronted by Occupy Wall Street.

For Jamie Dimon, the shelter of his Upper East Side mansion isn’t enough to keep him safe from the Occupy protesters. Instead, the JPMorgan Chase CEO said he felt safer halfway around the world that October day when protesters occupied the sidewalk outside his Manhattan home.

“That particular day, I was in Lebanon, Beirut doing business over there and I was probably safer over there too,” Dimon told Fox News.

Well, sure.

Dimon is the CEO of a company that materially supported Iran, Hezbollah’s sponsor.

Of course he was safe in Beirut.

I mean, maybe if he’d start sending $20M in gold bullion to Americans, like JPMC did for a bank in Iran, he’d feel safer here.

An apparent violation of the ITR consisting of a May 24, 2006 transfer of 32,000 ounces of gold bullion valued at approximately $20,560,000 to the benefit of a bank in Iran. JPMC did not voluntarily self-disclose this matter to OFAC.

But rather than sending gold bullion, JPMC is paying the cops that harass OWS.

Of course he’s safer where JPMC has paid off the terrorists rather than paid off the cops infringing on free speech.

bmaz @DougHaller Fine, let's go with the "get someone else" option. Graham is a terrible game coach.
bmaz @jujueyeball @mattfwood @dangillmor Also, you understand FBI is part of DOJ+what you are referring to is definitional, not operative, right?
bmaz @jujueyeball @mattfwood @dangillmor Oh, you graduated now huh. Well you keep at it. And dissent all you want, that is the correct reading.
bmaz @jujueyeball @mattfwood @dangillmor But, hey, you are a law student, I am sure you have it all covered.
bmaz @jujueyeball @mattfwood @dangillmor Well, except every professional in criminal law, including the DOJ disagree with that proposition.
bmaz @jujueyeball @mattfwood @dangillmor There are certain specified instances it covers. A man with a gun is not one of them, see e.g. Roof case
bmaz @jujueyeball @mattfwood @dangillmor Um, the pertinent statute is 18 USC §2331. It does NOT provide for domestic terrorism. Even DOJ says so.
JimWhiteGNV @emptywheel Returning to reality sucks.
emptywheel @JimWhiteGNV Whatup, dude? Our overperforming teams flopped on the same day?
bmaz @emptywheel @MasaccioEW @laRosalind But the Pac is so stupid this year, I seriously think USC may beat the Tree in Conf Champ game.
bmaz @emptywheel @MasaccioEW @laRosalind Probably not, but hope is still alive! It ain't over till it's over.
